A sampling of things that are going on and around.

A first birthday

with 2 comments

and a party at the zoo.

This was actually a month ago now since she’s just turned 13 months old, but we’ve been moving and cleaning and busy and now sick, and so on.  Turning 1 IS a big deal, and we had fun throwing her a party.

The table and some decorations, with a view of the lake:

Chocolate and vanilla cupcakes (I made) and pieces of German style birthday “kuchen” – donauwelle (chocolate), apple cake, cherry pie, plum cake, cheesecake, raspberry-currant cake:

A small area we set up so the children could play inside:

Just outside, with lots of birds and ducks to feed:

The lucky girl got lots of presents, though she isn’t really interested in unwrapping yet.  (she still loves all her gifts) :

A few of her presents were more for me:

This toy has an English and Deutsch mode:

I really loved the idea of a party at the zoo and it turned out that, in actual execution, it went well (if I do say so myself).  The zoo staff was really helpful and the room was clean and the perfect size.  I think everyone had fun, whew!

A few more photos, just because.  Here is Baby A at the old apartment with flowers from the party. D says this shirt looks makes her look like she’s at a Renaissance festival.. :

Outside with her 1st year birthday present from mama and papa:

  1. Wow, one already! Time really does fly, I can’t believe it! No booze for the grownups, I see. When my aunt and uncle had the 1st birthday party for my cousin, there was loads of booze, maybe it was just so the people without kids would be entertained… but it was funny because it was held in a kindergarten!

  2. Nope, no alcohol. The zoo had some rules.. one was that it had to be catered by them, though they did let me bring birthday cake. I think it would be fairly surreal to get tipsy at a kindergarten though, lol.
